Sennheiser adds the new MKE 200 to its portfolio
Audio specialist Sennheiser has added the new MKE 200 to its portfolio of audio-for-video microphones.
The mini-microphone is designed for easy on-camera use with DSLRs and mirrorless cameras as well as mobile devices, where it is said to ensure clean and crisp audio and to give a professional touch to video clips.
“With the MKE 200, we are offering creators the first step to upgrading their sound,” said Tobias von Allwörden, head of portfolio management, audio for video, at Sennheiser. “Improved audio significantly increases the overall quality of your content. The MKE 200 makes this possible with its unique design which minimises handling and wind noise. Simply attach it to the shoe mount, select the appropriate cable for your device and you’re good to go!”
The MKE 200 features a directional design which captures the sound of the subject while rejecting unwanted background noise. To minimise any handling noise, the microphone is fitted with an internal shock-mount which acoustically decouples the capsule from the housing. To protect from wind noise, Sennheiser engineers designed the MKE 200 with an integrated layer of protective mesh inside the housing. This protection is further enhanced by using the included furry windshield when filming outdoors.
